Tasting Notes

As we have said before, A-Frame Zin has been remarkably consistent year to year except for this one. The tasting notes are quite similar to past vintages but the 2016 has the intensity of Rocky III… Bold and rich on the pallet, super jammy with flavors of black current, black cherry and licorice. Soft chewy tannins on the finish. Can’t knock this champ out! He may be done in the ring but once a champion always a champion… we’re gonna miss ya ol’ friend.

Winemaker Notes

The 2016 “A-Frame” Zinfandel is an absolute stunner! How this didn’t get 100 points defies logical explanation! Ok, we’re a little biased but you get the point… and what a way to go out! Needless to say but this is it folks, no mas. A-Frame Zin is nothing but a fond memory… We get all weepy just thinking about it.
